Living in Hazelwood has shown me the positives of a community that comes together an support each other. As a community member, we focus intensely on giving back through service projects and more. People who live in Hazelwood are friendly and really produce a family-oriented environment. Products of our Hazelwood School District have also assisted actively in the community to make our town a nice place worth living.

I like how the district makes an effort to bring the neighborhoods together for certain events. But i don't like how the Hazelwood School distinct show favoritism to curtain schools, and allows them to get away with horrible behavior.
Great place to raise a family. It is safe, diverse, very affordable, and walkable. We need a Starbucks and more place to study other than the library. Very friendly place to live.
